replace the down tubes seat and handle bar and you'd have a clean fairly original kettle. With the highly desirable drum front brake.

Nope - for $800 he better drag that thing out of the shed, dust it off and take a picture.

I wonder how many years it will take before everyone openly mokes(as they should) junk like this.

I am missing something, Surf, what is wrong with this bike? No front fender, Benji tank, clip ons too low?

No suspension, rear-sets are too high and back (just used the passenger peg mounts).

At least it isn't on Firestones, has an inner rear fender and the fork brace from the front fender.
 
Yeah, I can see now that the rearsets are not placed well, do you mean shitty suspension? That seat is awfully close to the tank, the insets on it would not be usable unless the rider had very short thighs in conjunction with very long shins to reach the rearsets, also healthy flexible knees. I see this now :)
 
The bike is little more then an art piece.
No longer a functional motorcycle.

To me this is super lame and should be openly mocked.
I get that nothing can be pure function.....but to LIMIT use so much for some BS look is dumb.

Funny thing is that I dont think the bike ever actually ran!
They literally pushed it though some music video once.

When I saw this the little radio inside my head started playing Styx - "Too Much Time On My Hands". I've said it before, just because you CAN doesn't mean you SHOULD.
